Nice photo jeep and glider...

Post by Martin MB in UK » Thu Feb 09, 2012 4:37 am

Nice photo of a jeep just coming out of a Waco glider. Now I think it is probably Market Garden Sept '44, as pined on US flag, on what appears to be an M43 jacket, also soldier in the middle has buckle boots on.

Right in a cabbage patch, in lovely weather as well,so it cant be June 6th '44

Hi Martin,

This photo is taken in Holland at Market Garden. Don't know exactly where, have to check it in the books.

Any idea which book,as the description I have, says D-Day, which is clearly wrong. I only have a copy of the one page.
